League form is still to come to Shoemakers Lane, with a disappointing defeat against a modest Hadleigh side.

Sary Rahma (left of the picture) got the consolation goal for the Pedlars, heading in from close range after an hour to level the score. The visitors took the lead three minutes before half-time.

They snatched the points with 15 minutes to go, a scrappy finish finding the back of the net.

In the League Challenge Cup, the Pedlars beat Fakenham Town in midweek 3-2. Goals from Mark Allibone, Mikey Thompson and Jack Defty earned a home tie against King’s Lynn Town Reserves in the next round.

The Under 18’s remain top of the Thurlow Nunn Youth North Division and on Thursday host Aylsham Youth.
